    For me, it would have to be Armed & Delirious (also known as Granny, GrannyX, and Dementia, depending on where you lived.) After seeing Ross Scott cover it for the Game Dungeon, I tried it out and... sheesh. It's a weird game.

    Does modded Halflife count?

    I haven't played some of the extremes, but Dark Souls was pretty weird when i started it. Death being an ingame mechanic, the whole souls thing, etc. It was just weird.

    Other than that.. I don't think I have played any extremely weird stuff.. Does reading a walkthrough count? If so, then it's definitely this.

    Also, found the Planes thing pretty strange when I first started Planescape: Torment, but now I find them really interesting.

    Well...neither Souls nor Torment are really weird, I guess. Unique and puzzling to an extent, sure, but still pretty conventional in many aspects. Torment is a DnD game after all, Planescape is an established setting. Souls may seem weird, but its trial and error system is actually very old, it's just been giving a bit of an overhaul. It's an aRPG to its core.
    They are really unique games withing established boundaries, for the most part.

    ...


    For weirdest games...dunno, most flash games I've played were weird. Sven is a win, hahah.

    As for other stuff...Shower With Your Dad Simulator is fucking weird.

    This one:

    It's just an odd breakout knockoff.

    I'm surprised nobody played those super weird japanese visual novels/dating sims where you try to bone pigeons or cripples or tanks, or fucked up shit like Rapelay or Battle Raper or whatever. Your lack of depravity disappoints Slaanesh.

    Yeah, perhaps weird isn't the right word. I only knew about Planescape being an established setting at the end of the game. I was curious about the whole Blood War thing, and was surprised when the Torment wiki booted me to the general wiki.

    Gesundheit.

    Seriously, though, Japan is the biggest bastion of weirdness.

    That game looks pretty interesting.
    Should I get it?



    Are those things video games tho? I've played one of them erotic somethings a long time ago, and it was a visual novel. Very straigthforward. Then again, I don't know much about those stuff. Hentai and similar stuff are boring.


    Edit: I remembered this gem.

    Deadly Premonition by far.

    Downfall is also really strange. The "sequel"; Cat Lady; is more.....normal? Maybe because I felt at home when I saw the homage to Maniac Mansion.

    Corruption of Champions and Trails in Tainted Space. Really NSFW with their weird fetishes.

    I think you mean No Safe For Work instead not No Safe For Work.

    I think it's well worth the five bucks. In any case you're supporting an indie developer, which is always a good cause.

    Metal Gear Solid 2 was pretty weird.
